It IS Saturday. And I know I already posted this morning, but it IS Saturday. And every Saturday (nearly) I post Favorite Farm Pics Saturday. So…
My husband and son left before the crack-o-dawn this morning to work calves while the princess and I lie in our grand bedrooms. That made me laugh-out-loud. I woke up in the guest bed because my husband and son went to bed early in mine in order to get up early. So, I slept with “the princess” and that is no walk in the park. Ugh! But, I did get a hug and kiss from both guys before they ventured off to cut nuts.
What a pretty morning here! Check out a few shots I got this morning and some from the prior week.
Here is Favorite Farm Pics Saturday!
Monday marks the first day of the Navarro County Youth Expo and I saw it only fitting to show you what this hog, our three other hogs and this family will look like come Sunday. Stock show week is a busy week for everyone involved. But, we love it!
Last summer when it was 167 degrees and it didn’t rain for 84 days, being the genius that I am, I planted two peach trees. Because, you know that fruit trees won’t fruit with out another tree like it around. Don’t ask me why! It has something to do with one being male and the other female. How do you know which is which? Well, truth be told, at the very bottom of the male tree there are these two tiny little nuts… Nevermind. I am so excited! This is a bloom from the tree that lived. Soon, I will be grabbing a “male” peach tree for this lady!
Let me tell you about this ornery cuss! He’s a fairly good barrel racer. They say he’s a great cutting/roping horse. I wouldn’t know. I don’t rope…but, I’d like to. Right now, all I know is that this horse is good for one thing. When it’s 20 degrees outside and you are standing next to him, he will set his nose down on the back of your neck and breathe. And it is SO warm! He has to be reminded that “this is my space, this is yours!”
Meet Petunia! I’m new at this and I going to venture to guess that most people don’t name their roping dummy, but Petunia and I have a love/hate relationship. I do all the work while she just sits there. I suppose without her I couldn’t do the work, but that’s beside the point. I do the work AND I’m the left in pain. My right shoulder now weighs 59 pounds and my right pinky finger has no skin left on it. But, soon my shoulder will look like my husbands (lovely thought) and my pinky will be calloused and it will all be worth it. So, Petunia, you just sit there looking all pretty and….STOP laughing at me!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Folks!
